Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.



Familiar - 5.5 x 4.5, Water miscible oil on oil-stained Wallis paper

Amazed that my bouquet is still going strong!

I have a feeling that these water-soluble oil paints kind of darken a bit when they dry. 
Does anyone out there in the blogosphere know anything about this?
I haven't used them long enough to know...but I do like how easily they clean up.

Hi Teri,
I use water mixable oils all the time ( I also love the easy soap n water clean up too- I'm a messy painter)..but I found some are creamier than others.I like Holbein,Max Grumbacher and Lukas. Winsor & Newton seem like such a struggle..for me anyway..to get them to move around smoothly.I also like to tone my canvas (or paper) first with a mix of ultramarine blue and either burnt sienna or trans oxide red. Love your posts! Adriana

Hi Adriana! Hey thanks so much for letting me know about the water mixable oil that you like. I am using W & N. Sounds like I need to try the other kinds.
Do you also thin them with water if you need to, or is there a medium that is better?
Glad you check in now and then! Thank you so much!
